Introduction to EL Strategies for the K-1 Classroom

Who Are Our Kids?

"IF THE CHILD IS NOT LEARNING THE WAY YOU ARE TEACHING, THEN YOU MUST TEACH IN THE WAY THE CHILD LEARNS" - RITA DUNN

 

An increasing number of us are given the opportunity to regularly provide direct instruction and support to a very unique group of students that are identified as English Learners.

We are going to take a look at 4 simple, easy-to-integrate strategies and techniques you can start using immediately to further enhance your instructional approach in order to reach out and engage this diverse population of learners.
